*Mentor Spotlight*
Tonight's featured mentor is Amanda Sam Conley. She has been running for 2 1/2 years and has completed 4 1/2 marathons (her favorite distance to race). She loves the peacefulness and freedom of running. Sam says "I'm not fast, but I'm peaceful and dedicated". Sam enjoys working with the kids, learning about them and sharing the sights and smells of their runs through the neighborhoods of Nob Hill.
We are so grateful for you, and anyone who has 4 half marathons under their belt after running for 2 1/2 years is amazing! You rock, Amanda Sam Conley! ❀️❀️ #running505 #justdoit #mentorspotlight #mentoringandtraining #runnersinthedukecity

*Mentor Spotlight* πŸƒπŸΎ This is Brian Watkins and he is a first year mentor at Mark Twain elementary. Brian has been running since 6th grade (same age as a lot of the students in the program!) His favorite distance to race is the 10k.
Thank you Brian for all your hard work! We appreciate you and hope you come back next year. #running505 #mentorspotlight #runners

*Mentor Spotlight* Monie Corona is a mentor at Mark Twain elementary, which was one of the schools Running 505 expanded to this year. This is what Monie had to share about herself and Running 505:
"I have only been running for 5 years and it all started by a particular someone in my life who told me I could never run a 5k for various reasons. So, me being me had to prove them wrong. I have about 20+ 5ks, 7 10ks and 5 1/2 marathons under my belt. Running became a part of my life- it clears my mind and makes me feel good all over. I don't want to become one of those people who sit on the sidelines when they are older... I want to be out there, still in the game, enjoying it to the fullest. I have been super lucky to have a lot of support through friends who encourage me to keep being the best me I can be and who also inspire me.
In my spare time you will find me outdoors. That is truly my happy place. Exploring, hiking, running, camping, walking the dog- life is an adventure and these are the paths I choose.
Running 505 affords me the opportunity to share my love for running with children who might not think they are "runners". I want to inspire them and motivate them to stay active and healthy". Monie, we thank you for your dedication to your students and your love of running. πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈβ€οΈ #running505 #yourockmonie #keepexploring #runners #mentorspotlight
